1. Guild Wars 2

My favourite Halloween event, The Shadow of the Mad King festival returns again to Guild Wars 2. Look out for the Mad King’s Labyrinth and the insanely difficult Clock Tower jumping puzzle. Take on King Oswald Thorn himself, dress up your new Path of Fire mounts or just get up to plenty of spooky mischief. Lion’s Arch has been redecorated for the event and there are plenty of treats to be had.
